Potty Training Tips

 

Potty training is such an exciting time for little ones and yet a struggle for most new moms.  My daughter was a little over 2 and she was all excited to start being a BIG girl and going to the potty. I was excited too, thinking this was going to be a piece of cake.  Boy was I wrong!  It not only takes MAJOR consistency but also some creativity.

Here are some of my best potty training tips for new moms:

1. Patience: Potty training will not happen over night.  My daughter was great going to the potty but #2 was a TOTALLY different story. :-)

2. Make sure they are ready: Your kid has to be good and ready or it just won’t happen. And don’t worry, he will be someday. “No child is going to graduate high school in diapers!

3. Make it Fun: We gave out M&M’s each time she went to the potty.  This worked awesome and she was so proud each time she got her “emmys”.  Although be ready for them just to sit on the potty to sneak those M&M’s without actually “going”.

4. Consistency: Putting him on the toilet every 20 minutes, without fail. Set a timer to help remember.

5: Get he/she some BIG kids undies:  We started out with Pull-Ups®.  These were great because I didn’t have to do a ton of laundry and they also have Pull-Ups® Cool Alert that will make them feel cool within seconds of becoming wet to help them learn to stay dry.

If you are ready to take the plunge head on over to the Pull-Ups® and you can print a $2 coupon or if you choose to share the love you can get a $3 coupon!!!

 

Pull-Ups® are also the only brand with the Easy-Open sides. This makes things SO MUCH EASIER! You aren’t ripping or dealing with sides that don’t stick as you try to open and close. Also with the Night*Time training pants you can rest assured that you’re not going to wake up to a mess in the crib or on the pajamas!

There are so many great resources and fun activities to help make this process easier so head on over and check out Big Kids Academy today!

McDonalds Happy Meal Recall

Heads up to those of you who may have had McDonalds Happy Meals in the past month!  McDonald’s is issuing a mass recall of more than 2 million toys throughout the United States and Canada, following incidents of choking in small children.

The Hello Kitty Birthday Lollipop Whistle, which was distributed in Happy Meals throughout October and part of November, has detachable parts that have led to multiple choking accidents. Because 2.5 million whistle toys were handed out over the course of the month, the fast food chain is offering replacement toys or healthy desserts to any families who return their toys.

So if your child has been blowing on a Hello Kitty whistle lately, make sure to turn it in at your local McDonald’s!

Check out this short list of simple tasks to get your home guest ready with the 10 Minute Clean:

  • Focus on just the areas of your house where your guests will be.
  • Declutter: Grab a bin or bag and clear off surfaces. Clear off tables, countertops and pick up items left on the floor.
  • Make it Shine: Everything looks better when it’s shiny so get rid of those water spots on the faucets by spraying them with a swipe of Windex. Also use your Windex® to clean your mirrors and give your toilets a quick wipe down. Grab your Pledge® to dust off tables and wipe down countertops.
  • Tidy the Linens: Be sure to shake out your floor rugs and set out fresh towels in your bathroom. This simple step takes literally 10 seconds or less and check out the huge impact it makes.

  • Quickly Vacuum: This is not a deep cleaning vacuum this is just enough to get a few swipes done to pick up major items such as pet hair or lint. It will also leave those freshly vacuumed lines that will give the illusion the whole room was just cleaned.

Here is a quick recap of the 10 minute cleaning using Windex®, Pledge Lemon Clean® and Pledge Multi Surface® and how you will feel once your house is shining! :-)

I Dare You to Take the Lollipop….

Warning: This is very freaky and thought I would share since it’s Halloween if you scare easily do NOT do this -This is solely for entertaining purposes and fictional.

Here’s some freaky entertainment….not a deal and although this is a fictional flick, it’s also a HUGE REMINDER to be safe this Halloween!! Take the Lollipop to see what I’m talking about.
This does install a Facebook app so I would go delete the app which you can find Apps on the left hand side of your Facebook page and click on there to find it and delete it.  It should be fine but it creeped me out so I deleted it ;-)
